These are fun. The first, “Guess-the-Google” is a timed game that shows a collection of images and gives the viewer 20 seconds to

accurately guess what search term was entered to get the given results. Enter as many guesses as you are able in the 20 seconds. Fun and, potentially addicting.

The second is called “Montage-a-Google.” This webtool allows the user to create a photo collage from a Google image search. The images are hyperlinked to their sources. Users can download their montage if they like what they see.  At left is part of a Congress

 montage I created (it is a screenshot of one section). This could be useful to create things like podcast cover art or a customized image in a presentation. A teacher could also use it as a set on the screen, create a montage us
ing a key term from the homework assignment or current unit of study, then, as students enter the classroom, ask the question (like Guess-the-Google), “What term was searched for which gave these results?”

Important to

note, both require flash (sorry, no iPad option at this point)
